Today is Release Day for the Seize the Love Anthology, which is a collection of Christian short stories focused on the theme of different types of love and how they all point back to Christ. A short story of mine is also included in the collection, and I am so honored to have it published along the fabulous authors featured in the anthology!
Without further ado, here is some info about the book and the authors within!
Honoring the Love of the Savior
Agape. Eros. Philia. Storge
All forms of love… Seize the Love pulls readers into an anthology of stories all showing love. A love that honors God even as the reader flips the pages to find the story of a dying request, a random encounter, finding proof of God’s love, reunited siblings, caring for others, finding hope, love among the hard and easy, and more stories.
No matter the form of love, you’ll find stories sure to warm your heart, bring a smile or a tear, and hopefully remind you of the love of the One who created you.
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
Featuring various love stories sure to please the whole family.
